Construction is identified as an economic pathway for minorities that own or work in businesses related to building, skilled specialty trades, remodeling, and home repair. On average, African American-owned firms have been receiving less than 1% of contracts. Meanwhile, contractor projects are stalled or delayed due to a lack of skilled labor.
